Estrogen is stored in the fat in your body. Lose weight& the estrogen is released into your bloodstream. This hormonal flush causes changes to your menstrual cycle. Heavier or lighter, more or less frequent, increased or decreased PMT symptoms, etc. when you weight loss slows, your hormones resettles.

Everyone is different and their bodies will react differently to the surgery and weight loss as the body tries to cope with so much change.

For me I have suffered greatly with fatigue but that was in part due to serious surgical complications. My period has not returned since just before my surgery and blood tests confirm that I have gone into menopause. Not a surprise given my age (very late 40s) and I figured it was going to happen sooner or later, just would have preferred the time to recover from surgery before having to cope with the hot flushes etc.

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!

      Today was rough...
      I've been experiencing a headache all day today that just won't go away. I'm thinking it's now progressing into a migraine. Does anyone else get headaches from taking vitamin B12? I did some research and learned that usually a lack of B12 causes headaches. But I've noticed when I take it, I have reoccurring headaches. 😫
